    Bösch, Patrick M.; Becker, Felix; Becker, Henrik; et al. (2021)
    International Encyclopedia of Transportation
    The results of studies investigating the impact of automated vehicles can vary substantially, partly due to different assumptions on key input parameters such as costs and travel behavior. We therefore present a detailed cost analysis that was performed for 17 metropolitan areas in 15 different countries.

    This paper surveys policy instruments aiming at reducing carbon emissions from road transport. We present the basic economic framework used to evaluate environmental policy instruments and discuss the challenges and limitations it faces, which are important enough to justify departures from the first-best instrument (Pigouvian tax). We then discuss a number of policy instruments, including fuel and mileage taxes, standards, different forms ...

Biogenic methane is the product of microbial activity, the formation of thermogenic methane is controlled by temperature, pressure and also by the composition of organic matter preserved in the sediments. Gas hydrates form the largest methane sink in the methane cycle. Methane hydrate is a mix of water molecules forming an ice structure and ...
